Aged Actor

by Farasi

Gravelly voice, hard to understand
Who would imagine him on stage
With a speaking part but there in his
Living room his image stood in a
Cast photo and an old playbill
Two Trains Running calling up
His journeyman, meter man,
draftee, purple heart, ptsd,
Life captured in the lights
Full of swagger and despair.
